And Taylor Wimpey has now submitted a reserved matters planning application for 166 of the homes which will be in the Western Neighbourhood of the site (set to consist eventually of around 1,000 properties).

If the plans are approved, there will be a mixture of two, three, four and five bedroom houses and 29 of these will be affordable homes. Access to the development will be off the A38.

The main materials used in the building of these homes, will be red brick, buff brick, natural slate and grey concrete tiles.

Open space will also be provided throughout the Western Neighbourhood.

The planning application states: "Generous proportions of public open space will be provided throughout the Western Neighbourhood and the public realm has been designed to ensure good natural surveillance and safe environments for residents to walk, cycle and play."

The reserved matters planning application is set to go before Somerset West and Taunton Council (SWT) for approval. The current target decision date is in May.
